Pond mysteriously turns bright pink in Hawaii - experts reveal why it's a cause for concern

A pond in Hawaii has mysteriously turned bright pink - with experts voicing concerns about the bizarre phenomenon.

Curious onlookers have been flocking to the pond after images first appeared on social media.

Volunteers at the Kealia Pond National Wildlife Refuge on Maui, some of whom have been around the water for 70 years, say they have never seen anything like it before.

Bret Wolfe, the refuge manager, said he was first alerted by someone walking on the beach who told him: "There's something weird going on over here".

But while it may look fun, officials think the cause of the pond turning pink could be more concerning.

On the one hand it is kinda pretty but again if this is caused by a bacteria then I wonder if there is a way to dilute the waters somehow. Maybe some device or such to absorb the excess saline?

Wow...pretty but scary too
